Dear WordPress friends,
I know a few of you use Flickr for sharing photography, and I wanted to share this.
In a nutshell, Team Flickr at Yahoo (as Yahoo! owns Flickr these days) is pushing a GUI/layout that is basically optimized for mobile devices, and looks horrid for anyone using desktops with large screens.
Some of us feel that Yahoo is trying to cheapen the experience, and make Flickr into another common social network, like G+, Facebook, or Myspace. This is salt in the wound of sorts, after CEO Marissa Mayer made a flippant comment about “there are no professional photographers” as far as Flickr Pro being discontinued.
